Research Suggests Medicine Plus Therapy Improves Success In Depression Treatment

The Tennessean (8/23, Wilemon) reports that a new study in JAMA Psychiatry indicates that “people battling severe depression have greater odds of recovery if they confront their fears through cognitive therapy while taking antidepressants,” and that “odds of recovery improved by as much as 30 percent over those who just took the medicine.” The article notes that the study “was supported by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health.”
